bottle at papago 9/9/10. clear. pours the color usually associated with scotch ale (if not a shade lighter) with a tannish head and lasting ring. there is some sort of fruitiness in the aroma which i can’t identify... along with toffee, malt, nuttiness and some mild milk chocolate. the palate is not as sweet as i expected it to be (and low for the style) while the flavor mirrors the aroma. there is a dry woody finish which lingers as well as helps make the medium body very drinkable. it lacks the warmth typical in the style but that makes it easier to drink (a style i normally don’t care for). 6/3/6/4/15

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JUL 12, 2011
12 oz bottle from a local grocer. Pours medium brown with a thick head but little lacing. Light aroma of caramel, peat and yeast. Flavor is unusual for the style with a roasted aspect along with the caramel and peat. This one didnt do much for me.

Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 24, 2011
Clear medium amber pour, moderate rocky head of beige bubbles. Bready, roasty malt and earthy aroma, a bit more herbal than I normally get from this style. Has a surprising sweet chocolate hit at the start, kind of a cocoa mix flavor, caramel, bread, herbal earthy finish. Has an odd grassy note somewhere in the middle. A little off, but not bad still.

TChrome (1447) - Bedford, Texas, USA - JUN 24, 2011
This beer pours a medium chestnut color with a retained khaki colored head. The aroma is quite malty with some roasted notes, also an aroma that I assocaited with Octoberfest beers that are lagered, but do not have a descriptor for. Flavor is sweet with some light earthy flavors. Pretty straightworward beer, but good nonetheless.
